Defining Photographs And Radical Experiments in Inland Southern California, 1950 To The Present
Freedom can be found at the margins. That is the theme of a first-ever survey exhibition opening January 19, 2019. In the Sunshine of Neglect: Defining Photographs and Radical Experiments in Inland Southern California, 1950 to the Present is a simultaneous two-part exhibition at UCR ARTS: California Museum of Photography and the Riverside Art Museum. The show presents the title’s territory on the eastern edge of the Los Angeles Basin as an experimental tabula rasa playground for photographers, where nothing was at stake, so everything was possible.
In the Sunshine of Neglect includes 194 works by 54 photographers, including ArtCenter Photo department faculty member Ken Marchionno. Other featured photographers: Kim Abeles, Ansel Adams, Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Laurie Brown, Judy Chicago, Joe Deal, Lewis deSoto, John Divola, Christina Fernandez, Judy Fiskin, Robbert Flick, Anthony Hernandez, Sant Khalsa, Richard Misrach, Kenda North, Allan Sekula, Julie Shafer, Julius Shulman, Joel Sternfeld, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Larry Sultan, Kim Stringfellow, among others. It is curated by artist and UCR ARTS: California Museum of Photography Senior Curator Douglas McCulloh.
Opening reception will be held in both the Riverside Art Museum and the California Museum of Photography. The exhibition sites are three-and-a-half blocks apart. The exhibition will run through April 28, 2019.
